Led this on 4/26/13 - pretty adventurous but certainly fun. The first pitch ends on a decent ledge with bolted anchors.
If you prefer to button-up the off-width section at the bottom, you may want to walk up a #5 cam - otherwise, you'll have to settle for almost-tipped out/prone-to-walking #3 and #4 placements in that section as I did. Above the off-width, it wasn't totally clear to me when to start heading left toward the two face bolts, so eyeball the sequence carefully before moving ahead.
Bring at least 3 long slings to tie-off the better knobs through the section that bridges the off-width and the face bolts, as the only other chance for pro in that section is a flared, dirty horizontal crack. Sling your lower knob tie-offs long or you'll likely experience nasty rope drag when pulling the final mantle over the anchor ledge.
From the P1 anchor, we headed straight up the face one more pitch on fun 5.6- terrain in order to top out (this pitch is a bit dirty and only accepts tie-offs for pro) and belayed from the tree. However, the walk-off was 4th class with some loose and bushwacking sections, so if that doesn't sound like fun, you may want to forego the second pitch and just rap off the P1 anchors.
